RTÉ's Conor McMorrow has written a fascinating piece about the potential impact Brexit could have on the Irish horse racing industry. He cites Horse Racing Ireland Chief Executive Brian Kavanagh who says Brexit is a "huge concern" for the industry on the island of Ireland.
The piece suggests the industry supports 14,000 jobs, attracts more than 80,000 international visitors and is worth €1 billions to the economy. The all-island nature of the sport of kings means it is exposed more than most to the effects of Brexit, as is Ireland's multi-million euro bloodstock industry, with 65% of all horses exported to the UK.
